Best Cover Band

The Davanos

It's super-cool that the Dusty 45s got to back Wanda Jackson while they toured in support of Adele, but it'd have been a lot cooler had Dusty guitarist Jerry Battista's cover band, the Davanos, gotten the gig. That way, legendary Davanos drummer Fred Holzman would have doubtless duped the British chanteuse into joining him onstage for a shot of Rumple Minze and a rollicking rendition of "Jessie's Girl" or any number of classic rock hits. Instead, Seattleites will have to sate themselves by catching Battista and the boys every Wednesday night at El Norte, the Lake City tequila bar that's thankfully made locals forget about the rough 'n' tumble Rose Garden.
